reporting of certain activity in the air above the scene of what was happening. can you tell us about that? >> reporter: sure. well, there was aerial surveillance going on. now, these negotiators have been on the scene since last week. we know the fbi took over the investigation last week, and we know that they've been trying to figure out kind of the layout of dykes' property. now, the aerial surveillance, when an fbi team comes in like this, they obviously have different methods that they use to get a clearer picture of what exactly is going on. we were able to confirm with a federal law enforcement official that the small aerial aircraft that we've been seeing kind of circling the property in the morning, that that was a surveillance aircraft. so that's what we've been seeing the last few days, and again police have been very tight-lipped and haven't said exactly what they have been finding or what the location -- or what the layout of dykes' property has been. >> gabe gutierrez, thank you so much. sorry -- you need to stay there, sorry, gabe. i wanted to ask you one more question conce
the bunker and rescued the child. >> reporter: in a matter of minute, just after 3:00 p.m., agents used an explosive charge to blow open the entrance. they killed dykes, before taking the boy to a nearby hospital by ambulance. abc news has learned in the course of a week-long standoff, the fbi had created this mock bunker near the site. and had been using it to train for different scenarios to get the boy out. monday's raid was not the ending police had thought. they spent days negotiating with the decorated vietnam veteran, through a ventilation shaft. when the talks finally broke down, police say they had no other choice but to catch dykes by surprise. incredibly, ethan's mother had asked police days ago, not to kill dykes. >> she put her hand on the officer's heart and said, sir, don't hurt him. he's sick. >> reporter: you know, friends and family tell us that little ethan is a boy that loves to be hugged. and you can bet, he's getting those hugs today. >> thanks, gio. >>> joining us are ethan's great aunt and uncle. take us back to that moment when you first heard he was safe. >> i

and we do not know here on the scene that has not been reported to us. but it did seem there was some excitement from law enforcement officials if it is true that the child was found safe. so we'll just have to wait and see over the next few minutes once officials come here and tell us exactly what happened. >> but you did mention earlier that you saw an ambulance moving. is that right? >> reporter: that is correct. that would seem to suggest that the child might have been brought out on that ambulance. we don't know that for sure, but we had not seen that ambulance come down that dirt road before, and it was around the same time we heard that boom, when we heard that activity, and, you know, we're just really waiting to find out, and certainly if that is true, that this child made it out, that would be an incredible relief for this community. midland city, alabama, is a small town, about 2,400 people, and they have just been rocked by this standoff the past few days. about 140 hours at this point, and people here are tired because they've been praying for the past few days. they've b
jonathan karl tells us about the news today. >> reporter: by one count, president obama has already used unmanned cia drones to strike more than 300 suspected terrorist targets, even more than his predecessor. but today, we learned just how much authority the administration believes it has to kill, without trial or evidence, suspected terrorists, even american citizens. a newly disclosed justice department document says american citizens tied to al qaeda can be killed, if, "an informed, high-level official believes the target poses an imminent threat." but the document says it "does not require the government to have clear evidence." case in point, anwar al awlaki, an american citizen and top al qaeda leader, linked to several terrorist attacks. he was killed in a 2011 drone strike. human rights advocates say the justice department memo goes way too far. and -- >> justifies essentially a claim that the executive branch can be judge, jury and executioner. >> reporter: as soon as he became president, barack obama stopped cia tactics like waterboarding that he considered torture. but this j
